Jed Fired Nolan

Jay Glazer was on the Dan Patrick show and they were discussing the Nolan firing. It seems that word has come out that it wasn’t John York who fired Nolan, but that it was his son Jed York. It seems yesterday Jed walked into Nolan’s office and fired him.

“We had hoped to get to the bye week (after Sunday’s home game against Seattle),” he said. “We didn’t think it was fair to the team to let the rumors linger going into an important week for us.”

Let me be the first to say I love you Jed.




The Pundit of 49ersNews. I do what I can to supply the Niner fans with their fix.

    Ha ha Mike Matz, nice one :D

    Lets hope Singletary can rurn this ship around… Say goodbye to the devil and hello to the "Samurai" and no more "stay the course" crap… :D

    Go 9ers…

    From what I heard, Jed is probably the one in that family that is the most like Eddie DeBartelo. Maybe those rumors are true after all…

  • Niner Pundit

    Rob…that is what I’ve heard too. Seems a good bit of Uncle Eddie rubbed off on him.

    Well lemme tell ya a story ’bout a man named Jed….

  • Vin

    Hopefully Jed will take some advice from his uncle Ed!!!!! They need to turn this thing around. The 49ers should not be the laughingstock of the league. They do not belong with the cardinals and bengals. They have 5 superbowl wins, they should be a great franchise like the steelers, giants, cowboys.

    Hopefully John and Denise will let their son run the team, and hes got a better idea. I am still in favor of them selling the team to Steve and Brent.

  • Niner Pundit

    Vin…niner fans need to come to the realization, the Yorks are not going to sell this team anytime soon. Not to Steve & Brent, not to Ellison, not to anyone. It will stay in the family and Jed will take over very soon.

  • Vin

    Well hopefully Jed knows what the hell hes doing.

    are you kidding me? what is there to love about jed york?! any fool with half an ass for a brain would tell you that they should have fired nolan ten months ago. the fact that he’s firing nolan now means that at the very worst he has a pulse and the very best he is an casual fan of the game.

    c’mon folks. we’ve all been through this before. anyone can fire an incompetent coach, it take skill to find a competent replacement. this is something that the york family has sorely gotten wrong ever since firing steve mariucci.

    jed doesn’t know more about the game than the average casual fan. they should have fired him after the philedelphia game.

    get excited when they hire someone that can actually coach, knows the rules and has a basic understanding of time management.

    ‘Bout time someone had the balls to do this. Now let’s see what Mike can do to improve with what he was left with….

  • Mike Martz

    Thanks Jed!

  • Rob

    wendell … Jed doesn’t run this team yet. That is why this is impressive. He did what his father should have done. It was John York’s decision to keep Nolan in the offseason. And, while he apparently agreed to this decision, it was Jed who did the dirty work. Good for him. Maybe our future is in good hands, after all.

    And, Pundit is right. This team is not getting sold. So, everyone be glad there is someone like Eddie in this family. Hopefully he will continue to help out and maybe bring to this team a real owner that knows how to get the job done.

    They have parrots in Denmark?

    Jed is a boy. I thought Both Scot and Mike were going to cry. They should of had a box of tissue at the podium.

    The Seattle game will show the difference if there is one.

  • Ninaz

    Maybe John should just hand it down to Jed because if the son had to make such decision its obvious you dont care about the programs direction so stop using the team as a money investor and make us win.

  • joe gomez

    I heard after he fired Nolan he went to play his Playstation 2 and tried out some new plays. This ownership is HORRENDOUS!

  • Marco from Stockton

    Let’s hope Jed isn’t like his Uncle Eddie. “DeBartolo was involved in the corruption case of former Louisiana governor Edwin Edwards. He pleaded guilty to a charge of failing to report a felony, and received a $1 million fine and a year’s probation in return for his testimony against Edwards. Edwards was on trial for extortion and other charges, among which were the $400,000 he demanded from DeBartolo to gain a river boat casino license. DeBartolo never received the license, was also fined by the NFL, and barred from active control of the 49ers for one year.”

    This franchise collapsed with Eddie D activities. So quit having mythological memories of Eddie. Young Jed may be a nice fellow, but at 27 years old he is not qualified to run an NFL franchise in that brutal and cutthroat world.

    I can tell you with certainty that Jed York is the wrong young York brother making the decisions. There is a second brother, and he’s the one who is rumored to be like Uncle Eddie. Jed is the nerdy, ego-centric brother (just like his dad). To put it to you in better perspective: Jed York is Fredo, the younger brother is Michael. Not much is known about the younger one, but unfortunately it is the older brother, Jed, who is like his father and unfortunately the one taking over the team. I’m an insider and know this with certainty.
